Former President Donald Trump criticized teaching children transgender without parental consent at his rally in Delaware, Ohio on Saturday night.
“We will also protect the rights of parents. No teacher should ever be allowed to teach transgender people [sic] without parental consent,” he said.
The crowd erupted in chanting “Save our children! Save our children! Save our children!

“Isn’t it amazing how this has become such a big topic? And who would even think it would be such a big topic? ” he added.
The 45th President of the United States made similar statements in Selma, North Carolina earlier this month.
“A Republican Congress must stand up for parental rights and parental choice. I think that’s a good idea. No teacher should ever be allowed to teach far-left gender theories to our children without parental consent,” Trump said at a rally, according to Business Insider.
“It really is child abuse. Plain and simple,” he added.
Florida recently passed a law banning discussion of gender and sexual orientation for children in kindergarten through 3rd grade, which leftists have dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. The Biden administration claimed the bill was designed for “LGBTQI+ children.”
As Joel Pollak of Breitbart News reported, the bill does not mention the word “gay” or refer to a particular sexual orientation.
Trump has also called for removing transgender athletes from women’s sports.
